Sewage Steward

How much would you pay to let someone else empty your boat's holding tank every time it needs it? A new company is hoping about $250 a year.

Klean Marine, a start-up based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, believes many boaters would line up for the service, especially those who dump their waste illegally and then feel guilty about the pollution it causes.

The company is starting a beta test program in South Florida this summer. If you're interested, check out its Web site. If the pump-out service proves popular, the company also plans to expand nationwide to be able to service cruisers who cover a lot of coastline every year. For about $250, that means your holding tank is emptied for you everywhere you go.

What do you think of the idea? Comment below.
